A fabulous and fun hand painted box from Blue Ridge Pottery, with a colorful Rooster kicking around on the front while his more sedate (and detailed) companion resides within. Originally created as a cigarette box with ashtrays (alas, only one of four remains) you'll find the two pieces to be in wonderful condition aside from a tiny rough area / glaze flake on the back of the ashtray, age crazing and a small factory flaw indentation on the base's edge that's glazed over (see pics). The box measures 4 1/8" long, 4 3/8" wide and is 1.75" tall, while the ashtray is 3 1/8" squared and .5" at its upturned edge. The box is marked "Blue Ridge Hand Painted Underglaze Southern Potteries, Inc. Made in U.S.A." twice on the bottom although it's hard to read. Gaily hued 'n humorous what other pottery box can boast the same? (OK, don't answer that....) You'll like!
